Chelsea Handler: “I Have No Regret” About My Abortion

Chelsea Handler: "I Have No Regret" About My Abortion

Last year, Chelsea Handler, 36, spoke publicly about the abortion she had at age 16. Now, the talk show host/author is opening up further about the life-changing experience.

“I was so delusional,” Handler confessed during an interview on The Rosie Show earlier this week. “I was like, I’m ready for a baby.”

But while the New Jersey native felt she was ready to be a teen mom, it was her parents who convinced her to terminate the pregnancy.

I was trying to argue with them and they were like, ‘You don’t understand,” Handler said. “‘You’re throwing your entire life away. You’re not having a child right now. This is not what our family’s about. You know, you’re supposed to create a life for yourself, and we want you to enjoy your life and not be raising a child. And we’re certainly not going to raise it for you.’ “

The best-selling author and host of Chelsea Lately continued, “I wouldn’t be a good mother,” she said. “I have no regret at all.”

    It’s not sad. It lets other women who feel the same way know they’re not alone. People can talk about pregnancies, miscarriages, stillbirths, but abortion is still taboo even though millions of women have them. Good for Chelsea for being open about it.

      The difference is that with pregnancy (it’s a joyous thing) when it’s a miscarriage (it’s sad because of the dead baby), but how does abortion fit? Seriously when my friend miscarried, I had to pity her, but when she had an abortion, I had to take her out to celebrate. Yes, abortion is a very common procedure and most of my friends have had a few, but it’s just strange how society is expected to treat abortion vs miscarriage. Is miscarriage just sad because the mother loses something she wanted? If so, why do we say “they lost the baby” when the baby is no more of a baby than when it’s aborted? My friend above had a miscarriage at 12 weeks and abortion at 24, but it’s a baby for the first and a problem to be rid of in the second instance. I just don’t get how we make the distinction and it irritates me when all my friends who’ve had abortions without thinking of a “baby” then want me to hold their frigging hands when they “lose their babies” to miscarriage. Either it’s a kid or it isn’t, but pick a damn lane!

        I’m not anti-abortion, but I’m not sure I could be friends with someone who had an abortion at 24 weeks. At that stage, it’s a baby not a fetus. It’s a something, not a nothing.

          I’m not anti-abortion either and I agree with you about the 24 weeks. I cannot understand why a woman would consider an abortion past 12 weeks unless it was absolutely medically necessary. It’s just something I cannot understand. Late term abortion is barbaric in my opinion.

            My friend had the abortion at 24 wks because her boyfriend cheated on her and she wanted to get back at him. I had a cousin who had one in her last trimester because she lost her job. Abortion is legal and it’s hard to tell someone that it’s not a human life at 12 weeks, but it is at 24. It’s still inside your body and dependant on your needs. Hell, Sen. Boxer said babies shouldn’t have rights until the parents drive the kid home from the hospital. Everyone had a different view, but the fact is it’s legal to have an abortion up to nine months (mental health counts, in case you’re wondering how someone can have an abortion late term). As long as it’s legal, I’m not going to judge anyone.

          • we are the same human being from conception and on, we are just in different stages of development. At conception, are genetic code is already there. At 21 days gestation we have a heartbeat, and at 8 weeks we are fully formed we just need to grow, and at ten weeks we have are own unique set of fingerprints!

        it’s not a ‘baby’ with miscarriage and not with abortion, it’s a fetus either way. its a fetus until it is born. if someone says they ‘lost the baby’ they are reffering to the baby they would have had if the pregnancy made it to term and they gave birth.
        people who have miscarriages are usually sad because most of the time they WANT the pregnancy. people who have abortions are sad when they find out they’re pregnant, happy after they get the abortion.
        also, a pregnancy is not always a ‘joyous’ thing, it’s joyous if you want a baby, not so joyous if you don’t. you are thinking from YOUR point of view only. not everyone feels the way you do. why is that so hard to understand?
        WHEN WILL YOU GUYS GET OUT OF THE ICEAGE ON THIS SUBJECT!!!!!!!!!!!

          Calling it by the technical term “fetus” does not mean it isn’t a baby. The word fetus is from the Latin word meaning “offspring” or “young in the womb”. The word baby is defined as a young offspring or unborn child. Fetus is a clinical term to describe a stage in development, like toddler or adolescent. A toddler is a child, an adolescent is a teenager. A fetus is a baby just as a newborn or infant is a baby. You don’t become a human being by virtue of birth. You have a unique, human genetic code at the moment of conception. A fetus is a living being. It doesn’t cease to be a baby until the moment it is born. And at what point is it a baby anyway? When the umbilical cord is cut? When it’s crowning? When labor begins?

          And since when is it okay to kill someone because their presence doesn’t bring us joy? Just because the pregnancy isn’t a joyous occasion doesn’t make abortion any less of a moral atrocity. It simply means you aren’t as excited about it as someone else. Someone may not think working for their boss is joyous. Someone may not think their rebellious, drug addicted adult child is a joy. Does that make it acceptable to kill them?

            So when did you become a person? When you crowned? When your mother decided she wanted you? When your umbilical cord was cut? When your mom went into labor? When your head was fully out, but not your shoulders? When you were out, but still attached to the afterbirth by the cord? When does the unique entity residing in the woman’s womb become a person worthy of the same respect and dignity most liberals give criminals on death row or a cow at a slaughter house?

            At the moment I was born and separate from my mother’s body. That really was not a difficult question.

          • Jenn in Georgia

            You were a separate body before you were outside of your mother’s body. Try again. And this time, please use facts; not stuff liberal feminists invented in their heads. Personhood is not a scientific concept. It’s a philosophical/religious concept. A fetus is a distinct human body apart from the mother’s. It’s bodily autonomy is not determined by place of residence.

            WOW and HOW SAD!! There are so many women in this country and around the world who would give and do anything to be able to get pregant and have a baby.. And we have all of these women using adoration as a form of birth control.. Hey how about this how about use the pill use a condom or how about close your legs.. What a concept.. I totally understand if it is medical and you might die or something and you have no other choice but do have one just because your mad at the father or you lost your job WOW what kind of self-centered pathetic excuse of a human being does that.. And I seriously don’t know how you can live with your self.. I a, all for the right to chose I get that it is every woman’s choice but there are so many other choices that you could make.. And for the woman that says well I had no other choice well that is just a pathetic excuse to make yourself feel better..

          How am I in the ice age? I don’t care why my friends have their abortions (mainly it’s been a revenge/acting out thing) or how many they have had. It’s no skin off my butt what they do with their bodies or their “babies.” My problem is with the weird way women want to treat the same damn thing as a baby one day then it’s a fetus the next. If I had a prolife friend who considered it a baby and a prochoice friend who considered it a fetus then it wouldn’t be annoying, but it’s the SAME chicks that whine over a dead baby after a miscarriage then act like it’s not big deal when it’s an abortion.

          As for feeling guilt or regrets, that’s never been my experience either. I’ve taken many of my friends to have their abortions and they all want to go party afterward. Every single one of my brother’s girlfriends who he’s had me drive to the clinic wanted to pig out afterward. I have never heard of anyone feeling guilty afterward. One of them even got an ultrasound done first (contrary to the view of some who think if the chick sees the baby first, she’ll change her mind) and sent the pics to her bf afterward. Yeah, I don’t think women feel guilty about their legal choice, but that’s why it annoys me to no end when they treat the wanted fetus like it’s golden while the unwanted fetus is just a ball of cells.

            Yes, they can. They don’t survive, but they certainly can be born at 21 weeks.

            The most premature baby to ever survive was born at 22 weeks. That’s the most PREMATURE BABY IN THE WORLD TO EVER SURVIVE. Doctors do not consider a fetus viable outside the womb at less than 23 weeks.

            About 80% of babies born at 26 weeks will survive to see 1 year of age. Unfortunately, about 25 percent of these very premature babies develop serious lasting disabilities, and up to half may have milder problems, such as learning and behavioral problems.

      She was in an hour long one-on-one interview with Rosie O’donnell. The majority of the interview was quite emotional and personal, including the death of her mother and brother. I watched the interview. She wasn’t there to promote anything. This was a side of Chelsea that’s not typically seen. If you have the OWN Network I suggest you watch it. Very good interview. And, I don’t think she gives a crap what other people think about her abortion. I admire the balls it takes to be honest about your feelings. Especially when they are unpopular.

    I guess adoption was not an option for her? Personally i think that if your stupid enough to make the mistake the baby shouldnt have to answer for it. Mind you circumstances like rape change things. Oh well im glad she does not regret her decision.

      Adoption is not always the answer for an unwanted pregnancy. A woman has to go through the not so easy nine months of the pregnancy, not to mention the sometimes not so wonderful event of childbirth. Not everyone is up for the experience, which physically continues to affect the body long after the baby is born. I dont blame her a bit for the decision she made, its no one elses business!!!

      It’s not a baby, it’s a fetus and just because 2 people have sex doesn’t mean a baby has to be born. There are millions of people on this earth who never should have been born.

        You do realize that a baby has a heartbeat at around 7 weeks. A real live, beating heart.

        A baby can feel pain at 18-20 weeks, which means that when you have an abortion after around 18 weeks your baby feels you killing her/him.

        When do you consider a baby a baby? When it is born? What about stillborns who die in the third trimester? Are they just fetuses we should toss in the garbage as well?

        Excuse me, but who are you to say who should be born or not? Our society has lowered its moral values to extreme lows by engaging in loose and careless sex on a regular basis. Casual sex has become a standard norm for many in our culture and it is glorified by the media. People should be responsible for their actions. If people do not want to become pregnant, then maybe they should not have sex or use the proper protection. Abortion should be allowed in extreme cases, but to allow it for people cause of selfish reasons is cultivating a society who are not held accountable for their actions. By the way, this is not solely a religious issue-it has been debated by philosophers and ethicists.

          No, it would be sad if she DID regret it. Why would you want her to live with a regret like that? You sound like a horrible person. The fetus is gone, her regretting it won’t bring it back.
          The fact that she knows she made the right decision is a GOOD thing. Maybe you don’t believe in abortion, but don’t be so narrow-minded to think it’s not the right decision for other people.

    From one Anonymous to another -
    U.S. Department of Health and Human Services statistics for 9/30/10 – 107,011 children were waiting to be adopted, and 408,425 children were in Foster Care. Thousands of children aren’t being adopted – your idea of an easy solution goes out the window. And by the way, women (and men) have been known to neglect, abuse, abandon, and kill unwanted children.
    Please also consider before callously dismissing them – cancer patients forced to choose between treatments to save their lives, or terminating the pregnancies; those with mental disorders such as severe depression or drug or alcohol abuse; women subjected to physical abuse by their partners; and those left in dire financial straits by their partners.

        Actually, you took my post to the wrong sense.

        I’m against abortion when the girl decides to have sex and pretend to be stupid after the good deed. Before having sex girls usually lose any amount of intelligence, knowledge and education they ever had in their lives. There is no wonder why there are people who claim is not worth to invest in girls education.
        Education is this country is bad and parents are not doing their duties as parents.
        If you do not want to get pregnant why don’t do everything to avoid this problem? It’s stupidity.

        Killing a baby wont make the girl get smarter, the girl won’t ever learn any lesson by killing the problem instead of learning how to avoid.

It’s a collection of stories about supposed “pro-lifers” who suddenly make exceptions for themselves when they find themselves pregnant but don’t want to be. Of course it still doesn’t stop them from judging other people, because that’s all they know how to do.

      Neither of my pregnancies were “wanted” or planned……how did I deal with them? The same way women/men have been doing it for AGES…I took responsibility for my children and became a responsible parent.

      I find it funny that many of these pro-choice advocates are so against the death penalty. I guess for them its easy to rid oneself of a fetus but it is “inhumane” and “cruel & unusual” punishment to give a murderer a lethal injection.

          Then the responsible thing to do is make sure you don’t conceive unwanted children in the first place. And, for what it’s worth, every child is wanted in some capacity, otherwise they wouldn’t be born. Even if the child is given up for adoption, there are people who want children. Even if the child ends up being abused, the mere fact that the mother carried to term and went through labor and birth proves there is some faint glimmer of wanting that child at least enough to make that effort.

          And since when is it okay to kill a living thing just because they aren’t wanted? I don’t want my neighbor’s dog to keep jumping the fence and taking a dook in my yard. Is it morally acceptable for me to go out there with a knife and stab it to death? I’m pretty sure most of you choicers would think that animal cruelty. Sad you will extend more compassion for owls and inmates than, you know, human beings who just happen to be at a different stage in development than you are.

      I had one. At twenty. I considered abortion, actually. That was until I actually read on a medical website (not some pro-life propaganda site, mind you) how the various early-term abortion procedures are performed. At eight weeks I went to my OB for my first prenatal visit. They used doppler to pick up my son’s heartbeat. When I heard the rapid heartbeat of my son’s echoing through the exam room I knew there was a life inside my womb totally separate of my own. When I reconciled that thought with the diagrams and descriptions I saw of various abortion procedures, I knew there was no way I could do something like that. I now have a precious nine year old son who is my world. His father is not in the picture.

      You people who are pro-choice should be ashamed of yourselves. You think that every unplanned, unwanted pregnancy should result in abortion. In fact, many of you will oftentimes paint it in worst case scenarios. “Why would you want your baby to be neglected? Don’t you want what’s best for them? You can’t even afford a baby! What about the father? He won’t be around. Is that what you want? Children deserve more than what you can offer right now”.

      Nobody encourages and empowers women facing a crisis pregnancy. Instead , choicers appeal to lowest common denominator scenarios to make them feel ill equipped for motherhood. Rarely is motherhood presented in a positive light for these women. Instead they are told about the virtues about abortion and how free their lives will be. They’re told they won’t regret a thing. That they’ll feel relieved. They’re doing the right thing. They’re told there’s already so many kids that need homes that putting a baby up for adoption will just clog the system.

      It’s sad, really.

    How can a person not regret killing their baby? It is a selfish act no matter how you try to spin it. Because she wasn’t ready to be a mom, a person has to die. Yes, the adoption process may not be easy carrying a child for 9 months and then giving it up for adoption, but instead you just kill the baby? You never give that baby a choice to live.

    For all your pro-choice it is not your body you are getting rid of. It is another person growing inside of you. That baby has a beating heart after 7 or so weeks. That baby is not just a clump of cells, it has a unique DNA structure that no one else will ever have at the minute it is conceived. Tell a mother who has a miscarriage at 16 weeks that she wasn’t carrying a baby but a bunch of cells. Tell a mother who has to give birth to her stillborn at 36 weeks that it isn’t a baby but just some cells.

    Someone has to stand up for these babies that have no voice. And for everyon that brings up rape or sickness, it is a fact that 97% of abortions are due to convienance… the mom just doesn’t want it so she kills it and has the doctor toss it in the garbage. It is truly a sickening and selfish world when this is accepted as OK in our society.

    If a mother has a child before 20 weeks gestation it most often cannot survive outside the womb and therefore its considered a miscarriage. Yet if a women aborts a fetus some consider it murder? I guess it really does beg the question of when is a life a life?

        If you don’t like abortion, don’t have one. No one here is saying they’d force you do something you don’t want to do. But apparently you do believe it’s okay to force other people to do what you want them to do. I think that makes you a bad person.

          Except abortion does force something very serious on someone else – it forces death on the fetus. It also forces loved ones to accept the loss. Grandparents who will grieve the loss of a grandchild. Men grieving the loss of what would have been a son or daughter. Children grieving the loss of a sibling. Women are never asked to consider the people who will be directly impacted by the loss. In fact, they’re encouraged to care less about what they think and tell them to shove it where the sun doesn’t shine if they don’t care for her choice. People cared more about Troy Davis than they do innocent children.

          And the argument of, “don’t like abortion, don’t have one” is poor. It’s like saying, “if you don’t like rape, don’t rape someone” or “if you don’t like people who get drunk and drive and then kill entire families, then don’t drink and drive” or “don’t like child abuse, then don’t beat your kid”. This isn’t some simple thing like, “sometimes I like doing stripteases on amateur night” or “I get my jollies tying people up and tickling them with a feather”. Abortion ends a life. If you disagree the fetus is alive, then you need to crack open a biology book some time and study human development. Science acknowledges that the fetus is, indeed, a human life. Whether you personally consider it a baby or person is inconsequential.

            Except the fetus isn’t a person. It has no rights, certainly not over the woman whose body it has hijacked. So everything else in your post is irrelevant.

            A fetus cannot hijack a woman’s body. It has no thoughts, feelings or intentions…remember? That’s the pro-choice claim. If that’s the case, it cannot forcibly seize control of the woman’s body. The woman engaged in acts that set the pregnancy into motion, knowing full well what the potential results could be. Since a fetus has no thoughts, feelings or intentions it cannot choose to “invade” a woman’s body. Pregnancy is a natural occurrence when sperm and egg meet and that fertilized egg embeds itself in the lining of the utuerus. It isn’t a medical condition that needs to be “cured”. A woman doesn’t awake one day and some tiny person has sneaked into her uterus just to make her life a living hell.

            And in many states, the fetus does has rights. Sadly, those rights are only extended when the woman decides she wants her fetus to have them. It sure is good to know the rights of born children are guaranteed and upheld and not at the parents’ discretion.

            I’m sorry, but did anyone not just read that Chelsea WANTED to keep the child but her PARENTS asked her to have the abortion? So clearly, your irrelevant post about grandparents mourning the loss is not true in this situation. We should be staying on topic about Chelsea’s abortion, not abortion in general. Chelsea wanted it, her parents pressured her to make the choice so she could live a normal life. She made a MISTAKE by having unprotected sex. Calm down. She’s clearly come to terms with her decision. It doesn’t mean she never felt regret, it just means she is finally at peace with her decision.

            And someone brought up the fantastic point that if it dies at a certain few weeks on its own it’s just considered a miscarriage or a stillborn and it’s thrown away. But if doctors go through with a procedure it’s considered murder. It’s also ironic the way some “pro-life” people are willing to kill in the name of “pro-life.” A man once shot a doctor in Florida who performed abortions. Look up the story about Dr. Gunn.

          • Jenn In Georgia

            The part about Chelsea’s parents making her have an abortion didn’t escape my attention. Clearly there was no grieving among her self-centered, irresponsible parents. Doesn’t make the decision right. Plenty of men rape women and feel no remorse or grief over their crime. Doesn’t negate the fact that rape is a horrendous bodily violation.

            In fact, the irony here is that the choicers keep saying things like, “woooo hooo you go Chelsea! Kudos for making a choice about your body and not feeling bad about it!” when it was her parents who made her do it. You guys get all irate if parents forbid a girl from aborting, but conveniently gloss over it and claim it’s “for the best” when the parents choose the other option for their daughter. So much for HER body, HER choice, huh? Nobody seems at all disturbed by the fact that her parents made her terminate so that she could “be a normal teenager” as if pregnancy is some abnormal state for a woman of reproductive age to find herself in.

            Furthermore, it’s murder for a doctor to take the life of a fetus. Miscarriages oftentimes occur through no fault of the mother. Here’s an analogy. If I am driving and a drunk man jumps in front of my car and it kills him, I’m not a murderer. If I see a man standing on a sidewalk and I floor it and plow into him, killing him, I’ve committed murder. Women don’t slip and fall into the exam room at an abortion clinic and whoopsie wake up to find their uterus empty. They take all of the necessary steps to securing the procedure, knowing full well the life of their unborn will be terminated by the doctor.

            And I don’t condone nutbags who kill doctors. But let’s be honest – there have been how many legal abortions since Roe vs. Wade? 40 million? How many abortion doctors and clinic workers have been murdered? Eight. Eight people in the abortion industry. It’s horribly wrong, but it pales in comparison to the number of people who would have been born had abortion not been made mainstream and hailed as some remarkable privilege women hold.

    Thou Shall NOT KILL! Only God gives life and He alone should take it. Believe or not, but everyone will have to be Judged by Him one day….We do live in a sick and evil society with no morals to say that it ‘s alright to Murder a poor innocent Baby that deserves to live just like all of us!

        It’s okay if you don’t believe. Sadly, if the Bible is true then we will all give an account on judgment day. The Bible says on that day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord. There will be no excuses on that day. Your pro-abortion arguments, scientific rhetoric, or detachment from emotional thinking will not satisfy the Almighty. He won’t give you a free pass just because you prided yourself on your intellect or “rational mindset”. He won’t even overlook your lack of faith and tolerance for the killing of the most innocent and fragile human lives among us in light of any sort of charitable contributions you made or how good of a person you thought you were.

        Quite frankly, I don’t want to have to be explaining that much to God in the end. “Sorry, God, I didn’t know your were against killing babies. I celebrated it as a woman’s choice. I thought it was just a blob of cells and you were as imaginary as the Tooth Fairy, so I went with science and liberal rhetoric instead.”

            People like me? People like me who live by faith? People like me who think it’s wrong to take innocent life at any stage in its development? A wife, a mother? What sort of person do you assume that I am and what do you think my punishment should be for this “crime” of believing in God, loving Christ, loving my family and caring about women AND their unborn equally?

    I’m against abortion when the girl decides to have sex and pretend to be stupid after the good deed. Before having sex girls usually lose any amount of intelligence, knowledge and education they ever had in their lives. There is no wonder why there are people who claim is not worth to invest in girls education.
    Education is this country is bad and parents are not doing their duties as parents.
    If you do not want to get pregnant why don’t do everything to avoid this problem? It’s stupidity.

    Killing a baby wont make the girl get smarter, the girl won’t ever learn any lesson by killing the problem instead of learning how to avoid.

    think she’s a heartless person. I’m not saying tht she should have kept the baby if she didn’t feel ready but to say that she has no regret is just wrong. How can she say she has no regret whn she says that it was her parents that told her to have an abortion. She obviously wanted the baby and you always do wonder abot it. It is only human, even if it was the right thing to do at the time.
    Beside this is something that she shouldn’t just broadcast whe she needs to promote something.

      She isn’t just broadcasting it now. She alludes to it frequently on her show, which you’d know if you actually knew anything about her instead of assuming. It’s clear from everything she’s said that there’s no way she ever wanted a baby. Why can’t you just accept that not everyone thinks the same way you do, and not everyone wants to live their life the way you do?

    Jenn in Georgia wiped up the floor with all the stupid low lifer pro choice sluts in this room.
    The rational thinker is Jenn while the rest of these morons who have no moral compass imagine they are showing an attitude worthy of being proud when they say we shouldn’t judge that filthy pig Chelsea Handler for not regretting her abortion.
    Handler exposes her black damaged heart at this admission and any one of you who admire her expose the base persons that you are.
    Note that Jenn showed a superior mental acuity throughout this discussion as well as spelled words correctly and used proper grammar and punctuation. Now compare the other posters and check their spelling etc. Jenn has been casting her pearls before swine here. I doubt most of you will know or understand that reference.
    Finally, Chelsea Handler is the most abominably dressed celebrity I can think of. She must get her wardrobe at Walmart, no disrespect intended toward Walmart.

    What I find interesting is people call me selfish for having an abortion when my friend kept her baby and gave her to her parents to look after because she wanted to party instead. Whose more selfish?

    What a sicko family. The girl had SOME set of values, but no, the parents talked her into killing a perfectly fine kid, so she could “make a life for herself”. And, no WAY were they going to be “hassled” with a kid.

    Moronic parents, moronic woman. The only plus part of all this is that if they don’t procreate, soon the whole pathetic, warped family line will be gone. Good.

    I had an abortion this week- 3 weeks of pregnancy. It was just some cells gathered together and my doc is the professor here. I accept that I was crying and I wanted to keep it but there were some things that made ME change my mind. First is that there were 90 percent this baby would be sick coz of some reasons. Second the so called father was against the baby and even more- said he would kill me if he sees me ever again. Third is my family- why should I give birth for my mum and dad? They didnt ask me for a baby. They dont have to spend the rest of their lives taking care of my sick child ( again there was 90 percent of it ) coz their daughter made a mistake, she doesnt have financiasl stability, support, flat and man beside her. Its not fair as well to kill people ALIVE who gave everything to you. So I did it. I dont regret it though of coz feel not ok with it, with the situation. But I am sure there will be time when I give birth to babies whose father will love them as much as my dad loves me, there will be enough money to take care of them and no one would be hurt. And yes I do believe in God and God is not evel- he forgives people. He sees everything and there is time for everyone to be born. So no regrets- just take a lesson and be a better person in the future. We all make our own choices and no one has any right to judje any decision we make with our bodies.

    Hi

    My friend just had an abortion at 3 months. I want to support her as a friend but i’m tormented by the images of that baby being killed the way it did. I cannot judge as i’m not in her shoes and I am not God. I do believe that each one has an answering to God and she will have to answer for her decision to Him. I feel very sad for the murdered child and i just cannot believe how happy she is that its done but thats just me.
